Warning- I am going to use this post to do a little pregnancy whining. I will try to keep it light hearted and I invite all of you to also whine and or share fun pregnancy craving memories in the comments.
With my first two pregnancies, cravings weren't all that big of a deal. I had a few, but they were pretty easy to satisfy, and I would say pretty common. Lets start with Maeve. The big cravings were peanut butter and jam sandwiches, and anything with honey.Oh so yummy
Perfect anytime of day!
With Isaac, it was just pickles. I know this sounds really cliche, but I have never cared for pickles in my life and when I was pregnant with Isaac, they suddenly became the tastiest things in the world. Tons of people feel this way about pickles when they are pregnant. There should be some research on it.
That's not me with the pickle in that picture, but I'll bet a zillion dollars that lucky girl is pregnant.
Pickles never tasted as good after Isaac was born. When I found out I was pregnant this time, I went straight to the store for some pickles, eager to recapture the magic. Sadly, it just isn't the same this time. The pickles are in my fridge, lonely and untouched.
I do have cravings this time, but they are evil ones that I CAN'T SATISFY!! Exhibit A:
These are the best chips ever created. I guess not everyone agrees with me though because ever since I bought my last bag last month, they have disappeared. I have heard rumors that they have been discontinued, and that made me die inside a little. Seriously, last time I bought them they were at Macey's. I then looked for them at almost every other store in Utah and they were nowhere to be found. I wasn't too worried though. I went back to Macey's fully expecting to find them. They were GONE! And now there was a new chip. Plain Limon. What a joke. Those normal Limon chips mocked me. LIMON IS NOTHING WITHOUT CHILE!!!!
Lets move on. Exhibit B:
If you don't like sushi to begin with, I am going to have a hard time explaining this one to you. I like Sushi, but since becoming pregnant, I LOVE sushi. When I think about Sushi, I think I know what crackheads must feel like when they think about their next... I'm not sure what they would call it... just the next time they smoke crack okay? There are two problems with this craving.
1. Sushi is supposed to be a pregnancy no-no.
2. Sushi is kinda pricey. I'm kinda poor. I can't just pick some up at the grocery store or a drive through. I'm not sure I would if I could cause that sounds.... ummm..... gross.
A few weeks ago I broke down and went out for Sushi with my friend Shan (who is about 12 months pregnant herself). We shared a veggie roll, vegas roll, and surf and turf roll. I am sure the veggie roll was safe due to lack of fish. I justify the other two because they are fried (tempura) so I think that makes them cooked.
In conclusion, I am asking you for a few favors. First, please comment and share in my misery in some way. Second, if you see Chile Limon chips anywhere, please alert me RIGHT AWAY! I may need you to stand guard in front of them until I arrive. Finally, if you want to go get some Sushi give me a call. Bryce is a hater so he won't be going with me anytime soon, and I need him to stay home with Isaac while I eat anyway!
